Ghost Chiles (also called "Bhut Jolokia" in the parts of India where they are cultivated) are among the hottest, most potent chiles on the planet.  Known by several names, including "poison pepper," these fiery chiles are believed to have originated in Assam, India. The word "bhut" means "ghost," most likely nodding to the way the heat of this pepper sneaks up on the one who eats it. Their capsaicin content is so high that farmers in India have been known to smear fresh chiles on fences to keep wild elephants away.

Grind and add to seasoning rubs. Steep whole in cooking liquid or sauces to extract its exceptional level of heat. Use in any application where extreme levels of spiciness are desired.

Warning: Handle with latex gloves and avoid contact with face and eyes. To rehydrate, rinse with warm water. Soak in warm water for 10 minutes, or add directly to cooking liquid to extract flavour during cooking.
